Sally has been a prolific writer of wet felting tutorials for several years with the occasional foray into literature and much more...

Instant Bread Mix Dough is the new Play Dough!

Make Wright's Premium Bread Dough your Child's favorite new Play Dough! This is such a lot of fun and such an easy way to teach children about Baking Bread.. Help them to create some Edible Dough Creatures which can be baked and be ready to eat in an hour.

Things you will need:-

  • 1 pkt Wrights Premium Bread Mix
  • 320 ml Warm Water
  • White Cake or Bread Flour, for Dusting the Work Surface
  • Raisins, Chocolate Buttons etc., for creating the eyes

Equipment Needed.

  1. 1 Apron (Optional)
  2. A Head Band or Cooks Hat (Optional)
  3. A Large Mixing Bowl
  4. 1 Measuring Jug
  5. A chair or stool - at the height of the child doing the baking. Cover with a sheet of plastic to help prevent mess.
  6. A Plastic Spatula or Wooden Spoon for mixing the dough. I generally use an Kenwood Mixer. Not advisable when working with Children as the dough needs very little handling to give great results. Mixing the dough by hand gives the child an opportunity to have a much more hands on experience of baking.
Ingredients & Equipment.

Step 1

Encourage the Child to open the Bag of Flour. Let him or her think that Christmas has come early!

Step 2

Encourage the Child to add the Flour into the Bowl by themselves. They should always be made to feel involved in every stage of creating Mr Frog.

Step 3

Allow the child to stir the dry ingredients with a spoon or spatula. It will give them the chance to put their own stirring techniques into practice before you let them add the warm water. Explain to the child that the Mix has a magic ingredient in it called Yeast. Tell them that when the magic ingredient is mixed with warm water it will help Mr Frog grow into a much bigger Frog. Let him see how much bigger he grows when he has been left in a warm place to rise.

Step 4

Let the child pour in the warm water by themselves. Be on hand to assist them if any help is required.

Step 5

Help the Child to stir in the warm water. It will be a fairly stiff mix and those little hands might need a little help!

Step 6

The Bread Mix is now ready to be placed on a clean work surface.

Step 7

Let the Child dust the work surface with Cake or Bread Flour. It will afford them the opportunity to feel the wet and dry ingredients for themselves.

Step 8

Help the Child to turn the dough out onto the floured work surface. It will give them the opportunity to feel the weight of the wet dough as opposed to that of the light dusting of flour which was put on the work surface.

Step 9

Let the child observe while you knead the dough for five minutes Then cut off a piece of dough for them play with while you assemble the pieces to make Mr. Frog.

Step 10

  • Enlist the help of the youngster to help roll all the little pieces required to make up Mr Frog.
  • The Child should be made to feel involved in every step. Tell them that they are doing a good job - even if you have to go behind them to tidy up a little - but only when they are not looking of course!
  • Divide the mixture into ten pieces. This mix will make five frogs - two pieces per frog or you can make a mix any characters of your choice.
  • Shape one piece into a round bun.
  • From a second piece, make two large back legs and two slightly smaller front legs. Cut two additional pieces for the eyes.
  • Let the Child help to roll them out lightly - then cut out the claws with a sharp knife for him or her, as shown in the images shown.
  • Make the eyes from a triangular shape, a bit bigger at the front than the back. Let the child push a raisin into each eye socket.
  • Cut a mouth - Don't forget this essential feature of his face. We did!
  • You could use orange peel instead of making a cut. A nice deep wide cut will do very well. If it is not cut deep or wide enough, it could disappear when the frog starts to grow in size when the dough begins to rise.

Step 11

As shown in the image here - we have three complete legs with claws and one sausage shape which is ready to have it's claws made.

Grease the baking tin

Let the youngster help with all the aspects of the baking, including allowing them grease the baking sheet! Explain to them why it is necessary for them to do this..

Assemble Mr. Frog.

Let the child help you to transfer Mr Fog from the work surface to the Baking Tray. Assemble him with the assistance of your helper and again, make the child feel that they are being involved in every step.

Let the Frog Prove! (Or Rise)

Cover with a damp tea cloth or pull a plastic bag over the whole baking tray. Let the Mr. Frog prove - until he has doubled in size, usually for about thirty to forty minutes - but you will be able to tell, just by looking at him whether he is ready to go into the oven!

Source

Other Shapes Colors and Designs!

Make little faces on a bun. You could make a Tortoise by adding a criss-cross design on an additional piece of dough. Place this on the top of the round body. Add two round feet on each side of the body - push them in close to the body and don't forget to give him some facial features as well.

You could add edible food coloring to the dough, to make a variety of things including Sea Shells or Starfish.

Waiting for Mr. Frog to grow

Proving Mr. Frog should take about thirty to forty minutes. Here a youngster waits patiently for his Frog to grow gigger. It is best to place the Frog under a damp tea towel. In the meantime you can busy yourselves with some more 'character building ' exercises!

Source

Ready to bake!

When Mr. Frog has doubled in size, put him into a hot oven for fifteen minutes or until golden brown. The frog should be brown on the bottom too and should sound hollow inside when tapped with your fingers.

        I don't know a child that does not enjoy baking and this has to be the real deal, play dough that you really can bake and eat! We had so much fun making these little frogs and I know your children will too.Have fun.

        Definitely, make your usual bread recipe and make your frogs with that.

        Otherwise, use an instant bread mix, like the ones which you can buy to put into a bread maker. There are usually around 500 grams of bread mix in a packet, quite a small quantity, just enough to make a medium size loaf of bread. Have fun:)

        I very much appreciate your visit and your comment. Mr Frog certainly had enough charisma to charm a princess but in this case it was me and my little helper who fell to his charms. I loved doing this hub and I do hope that lots of children worldwide get the opportunity to make bread frogs, at least once during their lifetime.

        Hello Kathyryn,

        My, but you have been a stranger, how lovely to see you. I am delighted you enjoyed this Hub. The little one is my special little guy and we loved making Edible Bread Frogs together - so much so, that his sister later asked - have you still got the recipe? You have a terrific day too.

        It's a tough alumni here in HubLand. Reminds me of my comedy room I ran. Tough, rowdy bar on the west side in Phoenix. If you didn't "have it," the crowd wouldn't listen to ya. "My comedians" KNEW that if they could keep my audience laughing, it was confirmation that they were GOOD at it.

        I noticed the scaredy-cat comics were either no shows or "bombed" on my stage because even THEY knew they were only a marginally decent stand-up comic and only in front of a nice, polite audience like in Scottsdale.

        Dan W Miller - You must be doing something right, mine has gone down 8 points in less than two weeks, in spite of this one making the Hub of the Day about a week or so back! Guess they had to take some of my points away in order to give you a few more! Ha - Takes the biscuit I think! Someone has been 'cooking' the books.

        Oh, you're awesome, Sallybea! I didn't hang around long enough on your account to realize it was your first cooking hub. OUTSTANDING! I guess some people aren't boxing fans, either (as is the subject of my latest hub featured today.) Very tactful method to get me even more interested in all that you do with the written word.

        Yahoo! My overall score went up a whole point with my last hub. Must be doing something right now.

        Delicious - these little Bread Frogs are a breeze to make with Wright's Instant Bread Mix. The children simply love working with it.

        A project for your next day spent with your little guy maybe!

        Great Hub, but it looks like the predator from Aliens VS Predator movies. Don't you think?

        Suzanne Day - you definitely don't have to make your own dough from scratch. I can honestly say that this product is as good as any bread which I can make from scratch.

        My own mother would cut off a piece of dough for my siblings and I to work which, whilst she formed a batch of bread or rolls for the family. The child, though not my own and have mutual love and respect for one another. I want him to experience what I loved doing as a child. I love photography and he is so used to me using a camera that I don't think he was really aware of my doing taking the photos - so engrossed was he in feeling the texture of the dough. I loved doing this project and so did he. Thank you for the vote up and also for the comments. I appreciate your visits as always.

        I love the way you have done the step by step photos with your child! How did you get them to stand still? It must have been the frog! What an adorable project and thank you for opening my eyes to the possibility of using bread mix instead of having to work out making my own dough. Voted up!

        Jo Goldsmith11 - It was the best of times and the little one has not forgotten the day we spent together either. I showed him the images of our Frog making day and asked him of he could explain the steps to me. He has not forgotten one of them. I suspect he really is a Master Chef in the making. His older sister says she would like to make one too.

        Thanks for the five stars, up x 5, share and tweet - I so appreciate each and every one of your visits Jo -

        Blessings to you too! Shalom

        I had to stop in here when I saw the frogs title as my hubby loves to watch those little creatures. I may try to make this just for him as a fun surprise. What a great activity for little ones.

        Kim,

        I love the idea that you have lots of friends who might like to try this idea.

        The mix is available from Amazon but you could try substituting any bread mix which is suitable for bread ovens - one which you just have to add water to.

        Of course you could go the whole way and make bread from scratch with powdered yeast but I would suggest that if you do this, try it out with older children to help you, or just get the dough to a stage where they can just have fun making different characters.

        So nice to have you stop by. Thank you.

        sallybea,

        You are simply amazing. I love the way in which you provide the directions and especially demonstrate just how well you understand children...or grownups like me who need these step by step directions.

        As always, voted up/shared on HP/FB

        I have lots of friends with young ones who will love this idea!

        I have not seen this particular bread mix in stores around here, but I will check again. If not, I am sure I can order some online.

        Again, thanks for such an incredible hub!

        I would love to encourage all Mums and Dads to try this idea with their children. Making special memories with your children should be a top priority. Sharing something as simple as bread baking is so much fun. I love seeing them grow more confident in their own abilities. I have a gut feeling this will be a memory which will forever be imprinted in you and your daughter's memory. I wish I could be a fly on the wall. Thank you for your comment.

        Unfortunately, the little one is not my own but he and I definitely have a mutual appreciation society of our very own going on. I like to think that my contribution to his cooking skills will be remembered long after I am gone. I am glad you enjoyed spending time with us and of course, Mr. Frog. Bless you for being such a loyal follower MsDora - thank you.

        prasetio30 - I think it is a good way of staying connected with our children. You could of course teach older children the whole bread making process from scratch using fresh yeast but this is probably more suited to older children. I very much appreciate your comments and also the vote up. Thank you.

I always have a packet available at home. Wights keep a whole range of cake mixes too. Thanks for the vote up, pin and Cute cute cute - have an awesome day.
